5 Things I Want to Share About Today
Published on April 28, 2008
1.) I bought a pair of salmon colored work-out pants. I need to get my big ass in yoga class ASAP. I went Saturday, the first time in two weeks. This is not like me, but my life has been swallowed by work. This, like everything in life, is only temporary, and I believe I can find that balance again. Having a new pair of work-out pants, somehow, helps.
2.) There are people around me that spend alot of time being angry. This is not me either. I decided this morning that instead of reflecting their anger to them– just because their actions irritate me, I’ll make an effort to spread joy. Maybe they’ll get it, maybe they won’t. But it feels better to be joyful, even in the face of pain, then to be grumpy. “Like water on a duck.”
3. ) Eighteen more days till my ten-week summer vacation! It’s taken this long to actually realize that I do love my job, and going to work, for the most part, is fun.
4. ) “Once we surrender everything, we have nothing to possess. And when we have nothing to possess, we have nothing to worry about. All worry is due to attachments and clinging to possessions.” (The Yoga Sutras, Book Two, #45).
5. ) I am blessed. Very, very blessed.
